  • Principal Ruth Tucker



    Dear Whitman families,

    Thank you for coming to our conferences, it was one of the best attended in the past years! Our teachers truly felt part of the team alongside you to support our kids. One of the things that I know  were discussed is ways to help your child at home. Reading every day is essential;  all kids should be bringing home books and reading logs daily. If your student is not, please see your child’s teacher. Another great way to help your child at home is to ask open ended questions about his or her day.

    For instance:

    -What was the best thing that happened today?

    - Did you help anyone today?

    - Did you play with anyone today?

     As your child’s principal my doors are always open to you. Whitman is OUR school. Should you have any questions or concerns., please do not hesitate to stop by.

    As the instructional leader in our building I am committed to spending two full days every week in the classrooms. By doing this I am able to observe kids’ interactions with others and teachers as well as celebrate and highlight the exceptional instruction that’s going on at Whitman. However ,I’ll be happy to step out of a classroom if you have any safety concerns about your child. Student’s safety is my priority.

     I’m grateful to be part of this community and  part of your students life!


    Ruth Tucker
